Testimonials by Year
Eric (Dalim) Kim
University of Pennsylvania
Major: Marketing / Economics
"The famous Aesop once said in his Fables, "Heaven helps those who help themselves". In fact, Green River College does offer its students a rich spectrum of academics, dedicated faculty and a warm environment. During my time here, I was lucky to be able to maximize these opportunities which allowed me to fortify my educational experience and personal enrichment. I am eternally grateful for meeting the people who guided me towards my dream of attending the University of Pennsylvania. Not to say there weren't obstacles involved, I had more problems than there are security officers on campus, personally, emotionally and mentality. Fortunately, as I mentioned earlier, there were people I met at Green River who will go on to be my allies for the rest of my life. In my humble opinion, that is where I truly got my money's worth."

"Green River has been really helpful. This college has great instructors, advising team, and an amazing program for international students that helps students focus on their study. This is one of the reasons for my successful transfer."
Major: Computer Science
Also admitted to: Northeastern University, University of Indiana - Bloomington, University of Colorado - Boulder
"In the past one and a half years at Green River, I feel that I have grown more as an individual than I have in my entire life. Not living with my parents has been tough, but the instructors, along with my advisors and supervisors have all been great role models for me. In hindsight, I am glad I chose to attend Green River College."
University of California, Berkeley

"Green River has taught me so many things - everything from academics to really valuable social and life lessons, making it so much more than a mere stepping stone for my future aspirations and ambitions. The time that I've spent here will always hold some of the best memories for me."
Ngoc Man Truong
University of Massachusetts - Amherst
"Green River offered me a great learning experience and personal growth. This college has an international multicultural environment where I could broaden my knowledge and enjoy a working experience with professional faculty and nice colleagues from different backgrounds."
Major: International Relations
"Green River helped me develop further as a person and a leader. Because I put myself in positions where I had to interact with people from different cultures and countries, I eventually came to the realization that I wanted to study the relations between countries and what makes us the same, not what makes us different. This helped me build the bridge to American University, a university that will further help me with my continuous growth as a person."
Also admitted to: University of Rochester, Ohio State University
"The two years that I spent at Green River has actually surprised me. There are so many possibilities that can be explored and challenged. Those experiences helped me to better prepare for future study and career, and I do believe that I have learned American culture from a different perspective."
